I've got a Yakima rack that I've modified to carry a spare tire. I added two pieces of extruded iron pipe running front to back, some tiedown brackets, and of course, a mess of lights.

This is the best picture I could find showing the rack:

If you're into fabrication, you can take 1/2" or 3/4" EMT electrical conduit, and a little brazing or welding, and make yourself a nice custom rack that's fairly strong but not too heavy. Probably have to bolt it through the roof though. I did this for my old '82 wagon, and I carried canoes, 12' wooden fence posts, etc, on there. I'm going to make a new one for my '89 touring wagon sometime....

Sorry. Don't know if I can find a picture of it.

I have Thule. All of it was used stuff. Low price with great quality.

To continue Zyewdall's enhancement, two straight rod holders by yakima and the rails to rivet to roof work very nice and look pro.I had 87 dl with straight bar roof racks as a yakima set made for it (no side mount above windows).Idont know part no's, Finding the brackets might be a prob ...
